Taste like a light IPA. Very bubbly, and feels like it "disappears" in your mouth.

Best before October 2012.

A: This beer is a beautiful looking pale ale despite no matter what glass I use, I’ve drank a 6 pack now all out of different glasses and this looks stunning in all. A crystal clear amber body shows off a lot of carbonation activity, this beer is alive! A sizable very light tan creamy head sits on-top with good retention.

S: The aroma here is pretty nice as well, a bit grassy and resinous pine with hints of citrus. The aroma has a nice strength and a good balance.

T: The wonderful aroma blends with a strong malt base. Grass and pine with hints of sweet citrus make up the hop profile providing a moderate bitterness. This is very clean.

M: Creamy body.

O: This is a really solid pale ale, I don’t know why it’s rated so low, but I’m really enjoying this. The hops come through fresh and there’s good balance, this is very drinkable. If I could get this in New Jersey this would be possibly my favorite lawn-mower beer. I’m wondering if others have maybe had old bottles, or the brewery is very inconsistent, but this is a solid beer.

@Pilsner Petes East Coast Gathering-growler–pours a light tan head and yellow/gold color. Aroma is pine, bready. Taste is some bitter pine, sweet light malt-bready, semi-dry. Thanks notalush for sharing.

UPDATED: AUG 11, 2013 Wonderful IPA with slightly sweet taste and crisp finish. There is a resounding floral presence and the hoppy bitters are extrordinarily mild and simply unoffensive. It drinks easily and is light on the intake with ample carbonation. I had this in a bottle in quaint Harbortown bar/hotel in St. Michael’s, MD with a few colleagues. We all had round after round of this brew after maxing some crabs. This is a good party beer for the norm and even for thise who prefer craft brews with a nice approach!

Pours a hazy golden amber with a small bubbly white head. Aroma of citrus, spicy hops, bready malt. Flavor of bready malt, citrus, a little herbal and grapefruit/

On tap @ the Brewery-Clear golden color w/a slight white head. Floral hop aroma. Mild pine hop flavor w/traces of grass & some good carbonation. Very easy drinking session brew, not complicated, but very tasty. This is their "transition brew" for the BMC drinkers, but it is very tasty. Got a growler to go, which kept very well til the next weekend-which I’m drinking now w/adding these ratings! Not overly hopped like some pale ales. Long, smooth hop finish.

auerbrau (3157) - Peace Dale, Rhode Island, USA - MAY 9, 2009
On tap at the Red Roost - Winterhaven, MD. Aroma is a light salt of hop leaf, lemon sugar, and general alcohol. Clean, floral and light. Nice aroma. Pours a darker golden, with a soapy head in whitish. Flavor is a milder version of the ESB. A generic hop leaf and resin citrus over plain pale malt. Bright. Fresh. Clean. Extremely drinkable. Nice and solid, but nothing too crazy.

Bottle picked up at SL. Poured into a sam adams specialty glass. Weak golden yellow color, small head. Decent aroma of some lights hops and corn? For a pale ale its not bad at all. Light hops, little earthiness to it. Light in texture. Overall good for its style but I would rather have an IPA/DIPA.... 12-7-1941.... Drank this one for the troops!
